When He Can't Get It Up

Sex

More and more men are experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED) and it has left many wondering why this is a growing trend. One of the biggest contributors to ED is poor diet as one's nutritional intake or lack thereof can cause a slew of health problems from cardiac issues to diabetes all of which have symptoms that include erectile dysfunction. Having ED is a big warning sign that your body is struggling to get adequate blood flow and is often an indicator that a man's overall health is in trouble. 

In addition to seeking an evaluation from a physician, it is also important for men to examine their diet. One of the best diets for addressing erectile dysfunction is a nutrient-rich, plant-based diet that excludes animal products. There are a few wonderful books on the subject such as Super Immunity and Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman and How Not To Die by Dr. Michael Greger just to name a few. What is remarkable is that not only is erectile dysfunction in many cases reversible so are the underlying health issues that cause it such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Beyond an evaluation from a physician and a change in diet, there are also some fantastic new sex toys on the market that help to increase blood flow and assist in keeping an erection during sex.
